To be honest when I read where it happened my mind flew back to 1984 and the Rajneeshee bioterror attack ... the first successful 'Bio-Attack' on US
soil... so I ask why not Washington state for a something big to start?
If I remember correctly that was in Oregon State. Quite a ways from Tacoma actually. Though, we do have Fort Lewis and McChord Air Base just south
of Tacoma. However, this does NOT have the feel of something big. A big and important story, yes. But not the start of something big.
I am still looking for any real updates as they come in. I have friends in the department. Friends that I went to school with at GRCC to become
officers. Due to family and my wife's wishes I went the business route.
For anyone to automatically think the worse without any evidence coming forth is just sad. I understand that we have become embittered with authority
in this country. But it does not mean that every bad thing to happen to the police is deserved.
Who knows what they did. They could have arrested a gang member or a couple gang members. Destroyed an operation that would have made those
kids/men/people rich. And I ask, what's wrong with that if it is the case? Because after all it's upholding the law. Something that I'm still
thankful for in this country.
So until we actually get some real information on this I just want people to think about these men and their families. The loss they must be feeling
right now. Take out any weird justifications you may want to conjur up in your minds and look at it from a human perspective.
It's just a sad day. Just like any other day when something dies in a car crash or when a kid commits suicide. The problem with that comparison is
that one is an accident and the other is self inflicted. These officers were shot down in cold blood. Which makes it a bit different than the many
other tragedies that take place every day in this country and in this world.
